My work is a reverent, poetic approach to creating interesting and detailed worlds on silk. The luminous fabric is a joy to work on and watching the colors of the dyes spread as they are absorbed is transfixing. The molten wax, as resist, is warm and flexible and creates another dimension to the experience. The imagery is drawn from sketches made from paying attention to the details of life. The entire effort is an homage to the paying attention to the beauty of the decorations of the world and lifting a type of craft to a fine art. The face plays a large part in the works and, hopefully, invites the viewer into a lush, fantastic world.
